Join the Inclusive Journalism Initiative
The Associated Press, The Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting and The Maynard Institute for Journalism Education have partnered to work together to improve diversity in newsrooms and news reports through journalistic and leadership training and more inclusive storytelling.

The new Inclusive Journalism Initiative is an effort by the organizations to move the news industry toward a comprehensive plan for smarter and more expansive coverage of race and systemic inequality. Read the press release to learn more about the initiative.

To kick off the initiative, AP seeks a creative, strategic-minded program manager. Working closely with AP’s newsroom, the program manager will be responsible for helping envision inclusive storytelling approaches that include not simply AP, but other newsrooms as well, and how philanthropies can support those efforts. The role is eligible for remote work. Read more and apply today!

By Ernesto Aguilar
